Elementary students participate in field trips that pair with their units of study. Examples of field trips are, "The Little Red School House", Loggerhead Marine Life Center, Rich's Ice Cream, Publix, agricultural farms, etc. These trips, taken during the school day are designed to enrich student knowledge through experience.
In upper elementary, our students have the opportunity to participate in an overnight trip to St. Augustine (4th grade) , Myakka River State Park(5th Grade) and Washington, D.C. (6th Grade).
4th Grade: The King’s Academy 4th grade students have travelled with SonShine Tours to the oldest city in America for more than 20 years. The city of St. Augustine is a wealth of Florida history, as well as an insightful view into past cultural traditions. As the students visit the St. Augustine Lighthouse, Castillo de San Marcos and infamous St. George Street, they experience for themselves what they have learned in the classroom. Parent chaperones and students will warmly recall this memorable trip for years to come. This trip is truly a unique experience with hands on interaction, exceptional cultural exposure and a walk through history from long ago.
5th Grade: As fifth graders' at TKA, our students venture outside to explore the living classroom. Every spring, we take our 5th grade students and parent chaperones to the west coast of Florida to participate in Nature’s Academy Overnight Program. While there, they have the opportunity to expand their minds by learning about the earth’s ecosystems. In addition, they become mindful of our limited resources and become better stewards of God’s creation.
6th Grade: The King’s Academy sixth grade students have an amazing opportunity to embark on a trip to our nation’s capital. This trip to Washington, DC, affords the students a chance to witness history come alive right before their eyes. TKA has been fortunate to partner with American Christian Tours year after year to guide our students and parent chaperones to renowned historic destinations like Mount Vernon, Ford’s Theatre and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. Our sixth graders return home with a better understanding of their government, our country’s history and the Christian foundation on which it was established.
